Toon Toon

Black and White Army

But mostly just black.

As in black clouds, black arm band in mourning for the mess my beloved club has turned into.

The BBC's Newcastle United page from the weekend:



As a life-long, 4th-generation-on-both-sides-of-the-family toon fan (thanks Mum and Dad, there wasn't some other genetic disease you wanted to share with me?), I've seen more than my fair share of depressing headlines, but this collection is the worst for a long long time. Ronaldo's smiling face is just the icing on the cake, the smug little git.

After the game the unofficial fan-run website posted just the 6-0 scoreline and a phone number for the Samaritans.

Who can save us? Keegan has pulled us back from the brink of bigger disasters than this before. But he'd be mad to come back now.

At least the Canucks won last night. Diversifying my supporter's portfolio is clearly the way to go. Surely not all of my teams can be on losing streaks at the same time?

Sorry for venting, I feel a wee bit better now ;)
